Smogon Photo Album: The New Official General Bona Fide Thread

Went to Toronto VGC Regionals and met some Smogoners on Sunday.



Selfie w/ Zygarde Core plush I bought at the merch station. Layell and I arrived at the hotel after lunchtime and met up with blarajan. King UU, who was supposed to be there, texted us last minute saying he couldn't make it because he forgot it was Mother's Day. That made Layell and I the de facto tour guides for everyone else from out of town.











Taking the subway to downtown Toronto. From left to right: Celestavian (aka Hawkstar), Alberto, blarajan, Nails, Layell (off camera: RODAN). Everyone from out of town was convinced that the International Plaza Hotel was about three miles away from downtown. Layell and I had to explain that that wasn't the case (more like 10-12 miles). Around this time, blara told a story of almost meeting @v at the Boston Worlds (with the almost shooting), until v realized that he couldn't get through security because his backpack was full of weed.



Dining at the Eaton Centre food court. Shortly thereafter, RODAN said good-bye and we met up with Seaco, who wasn't in any of the pics I took, unfortunately. We walked past City Hall and down Queen St. West to Chinatown and Kensington Market before ending the day with dinner and drinks at a Tex-Mex restaurant called Sneaky Dee's.

A concussion update in my info tab
Jirachee drove to Toronto from Montreal? Sounds like his car was destroyed and he walked home.
It's a sports joke... Cause the Canadiens-Maple Leafs rivalry is one of the greatest in all of sports... You know, like the Yankees-Red Sox (MLB), Ohio State-Michigan (NCAA FB), Xavier-UC (NCAA BB), Duke-North Carolina (NCAA BB), Canadiens-Bruins (NHL)?

/me sighs
:pensive:

Where are the sports people on this site?

a fun little story

I'd be lying if I said I knew exactly when Berks and I became friends but I'm really glad we did. Funny, plays LC, always a pleasure to talk to. Really a quality human being. Didn't think I'd actually make such a great friend from Smogon but I thought wrong.

As any not poor white person would do, Berks got senior pictures and made graduation invitations. Of course I lowkey wanted one, despite the fact I live about 1,800 miles away (my Tennessee to his Utah) so I did what any logical human being would do and slid into the DMs.

Ok I haven't done this before and I thought to myself its about time smogon has to know bout him.

As some of you may already know I spent my last week in Porto, Portugal bc we did some sort of language trip or whatever u all that shit i guess.
So I decided to share some pics and a final surprise.


I don't remember when I took that pic because it seems like I was stoned and drunk as fuck (never buy weed in portugal that shit is actually horrible tastes like u r smoking glue)



I went to the church the same day and I wish I actually realized what was going because the church was actually amazing and gold was everywhere alas.



Me and my best friend about to go clubbing, which I highly recommend if u decided to go to porto for some reason. the clubs r fucking lit, however the girls r the whackest ive ever met.



Me with some fucking bird thta chased me the whole time i swear he just wouldnt let go even if i tried very hard to. at the end we became friends though he even let me pat him and we took that beautiful picture together.

= me thinking about suicide.
= me performing suicide



Nuff said.



Just wonderful view I hve been enjoyign the whole vacation. The water is so fucking cold but its vry refreshing and relaxing.



By far my favorite picture. Not do I only look super handsome on that the view is also just perfect omg.



Ye I'm sunburnt as fuck as you can see in my face. Imagine that over my whole body it just hurts a lot and I look like Mr. Krabs.


NOW LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IM HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THE GRANDE FINALE




Me and my great friend Pearl decided to meet up as he wasn't living far away from where I used to hang out :D We met and we drank a couple don't mind his dracula suit, even if it looks warm it was actually cold as shit and windy bop.

So there you have it the two cutest smogon users united one 1 pic. Hope we didnt disappoint.

Pce.

My accidental mission to meet all of my fellow SPL 8 Tigers continued today. I'm up at Penn State for the summer so I drove down to the DC area for a VGC midseason showdown. Pictured are me (front), blarajan (white smogon shirt, and he clinched his worlds invite today!), fellow Tiger miltankmilk (grey shirt behind me), kamikaze (purple shirt), and Jibaku (brown shirt). Even though I threw away my last match and my chances at cutting the tournament, I had a good time seeing everyone. Until next time!


Selfie we took for tigers chat right before we unfortunarely got paired against each other round 1. I played kamikaze round 2 as well so we had two DOU teamkills in a row :(
